The budget data bank is a tool for developing and storing crop and livestock enterprise budgets, initially developed by Oklahoma State University. Teaching staff, research workers and extension personnel in farm management frequently have need for cost and return data on crop and livestock enterprises. In addition, it is necessary to frequently update the budgets under changing prices conditions or alter the budgets for specialized purposes. The budget data bank will store basic data for 349 budgets. It provides a system for quickly modifying and updating the budgets and a method for standardizing the format and computational procedures used in calculating costs and returns form the different enterprises. The purpose of this report is to document the data preparation and processing procedures for South Dakota use in order to make the budget data bank a useful tool for all staff members.
